Dark Horse Theatre Company just released the upcoming dates for the The Calamity Improv Group performances which includes an evening of fun to cap off the holiday.

Billed the “Wild West” of improv shows, this troupe delivers an unrelenting evening, full of oh-no-you-didn’t moments. The Calamity has a style that’s never stale.

The Calamity is Fauquier County’s only improv group. “Prepare to be in disbelief that something made up on the spot could be so hilarious, yet relevant,” said Dark Horse Theatre Company Managing Artistic Director Natasha Parnian. “You will be simply amazed by this mad dash of improv games, audience participation, and thrills.”

“It makes for one exciting ride,” added Parnian.

The challenge of an improv show is that everything is made up on the spot based on audience suggestions and circumstances. The improv group includes Jennifer Arezzo, Star Bobatoon, Jessie Burns, Ali Cheraghpour, Judi Laganga, and Scott Pafumi. The night is hosted by the artistic director herself. Brittani Hall is the stage manager.

The material is for audiences ages 14 and up. The only December performance will be on Saturday, Dec. 29 at 7 p.m. at Vint Hill Theatre on the Green, 44225 Aiken Drive, Warrenton, Virginia. Future performance dates include Feb. 16, March 30, April 13 and May 25.
